Big wins for MINI at 2016 Auto Express Awards

MINI has triumphed at Auto Express once again, winning two hot honours at the 2016 Awards.

The renowned MINI Hatch was named as the ‘Best Premium Small Car’ for the third year running, highlighting its popularity and dominance in the ever-competitive category. The new MINI Convertible was also recognised at the event, taking the title of ‘Best Convertible’.

‘MINI Hatch remains our favourite premium small car two years after it claimed our overall Car of the Year trophy. It provides the benchmark in terms of style, quality, desirability and driving thrills, while being great value for money. And now it’s been joined by the MINI Convertible as a winner too, a car that shares all of the MINI’s winning attributes with an added dose of fun’, commented Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief at Auto Express.

The MINI 3-door Hatch stole the show as soon as it launched in 2014, winning the Auto Express ‘Car of the Year’ award. Later that year, the 5-door Hatch appeared, boasting the same allure, athleticism and performance as the 3-door, but with added everyday usability. Thanks to a longer wheelbase by 72mm, benefit from increase cabin space and load capacity.

The most recently launched award-winner is the MINI Convertible that burst on the scene in March 2016. Following in the footsteps of its incredibly successful predecessor, which sold almost 30,000 units from 2011 – 2015, can the new MINI Convertible become the best-selling convertible in the UK?

This new incarnation is the most dynamic, most stylish, most practical and most refined ever made, and it features a fully electric roof, larger boot space and exceptional equipment as standard. Make the most of MINI Visual Boost Radio, MINI Connected, Bluetooth, Rear Parking Distance Control and Rear Reversing Camera as part and parcel of the new MINI Convertible.
